Inter Pares Branding

Project Description

We are so proud to have done the branding project for our longterm client Inter Pares, launching a whole new logo and other materials. Informed by a deep process which included a communications audit, market research and workshops with staff as well as interviews with donors, board members and counterparts.

In 2019, we created animated motion logos to feature in Inter Pares' powerful video stories.

The Super Power Project

Project Description

The Super Power Project was a year-long collaboration with WAVAW to do a youth-driven multi-media campaign using workshops, video, art and social media to raise awareness and gender stereotypes and build skills to prevent aquaintance sexual assault. We worked with two groups of youth: Haisla Nation youth from Kitamaat Village, and diverse urban youth from around Vancouver. The project focussed on moving away from the boy = perpetrator, girl = victim stereotypes, and instead looked at how power dynamics affect sexual 'scripts' among dating youth, on "busting the myths", on the warning signs of abuse in a relationship, and on how friends (i.e. 'bystanders') can intervene to produce positive social change.

For many of our campaigns we have done a full range of advertising buys, in print, radio, transit, television and bar ads. Here we showcase some of our full-page magazine ads in publications which include Elle, Chatelaine, Macleans, and the Walrus as well as the documentary magazine POV.

Bevel Up Outreach (Film)

Project Description

Bevel Up, a film by Nettie Wild, follows the BCCDC outreach nurse team as they provide care for people in Vancouver's downtown eastside. The DVD includes extra materials that are useful in an educational context, and gives a human face to the idea of harm reduction. We worked on doing outreach on social media for the film, connecting it to communities interested in Harm Reduction. 

LACE - Making Health Fashionable!

Project Description

Hello Cool World created a unique transmedia campaign for BC Cancer Agency. The first of its kind to use social media, short film, and grassroots outreach, LACE Campaign (Live Aware, Create Empowerment) turned the tables on the world of ‘ribbon’ branding, and made Pap tests fun (or at least not so bad). In 2011, we received an Award of Excellence in Health Promotion from the BC Medical Association.

One part of this project entailed doing a fashion shoot and PSA with the tagline: Don't forget what's inside! The ad ran on TV in during Pap Awarness week during the America's Next Top Model.
